I woke up Thursday morning a bit early, around 5:30 AM and looking up at my ceiling where the time and temp are projected I laid there in shock as I read the outside temperature: 41 degrees! I spent the next 30 minutes thinking about what to wear.
I ended up going with a short and long sleeve riding shirts, riding jacket, wind vest, cold weather gloves, wool sox, a headband and shorts.
While it was cold the legs were fine.
By the time I got to the half way point where I took these pictures I was getting hot and took off the vest.
Hands were starting to sweat at this point, too
I found the original mount to my Blinky and hooked it up last week. It beats having it dangle off the seatpack. I am really enjoying riding the Qball as a commuter. It has such a nice, smooth and solid feel to it.
Can't ride without Zip Pits!
Someone told me at lunch that it was supposed to rain. At 3 PM it was looking gloomy out and I chided myself for removing my fenders last night. I got on the road a little early and felt a few schpritzes but nothing sustained. I tried riding a different route and I was going for speed. Last week, I got home in 39 minutes taking the all backroads route. Today, I tried a more direct route on a major roads and probably would have beaten that time except for having to remove my riding jacket because I was getting too hot and having to stop a second time to retie my shoe. Add to the fact that I was carrying my laptop I rolled in to the Snack House in 41 minutes. 5 minutes later, it started to pour!
